“The Color Conversation: Straight Talk on the Race Talk: How to Handle Difficult Comments Made by Friends or Family”
Saturday, March 21
1 PM to 4 PM

Our second parenting seminar will continue the conversation from our first parenting seminar starting where we left off: how to respond to racist comments from family and friends. We will have a new line-up of speakers but the same safe and supportive environment for dialogue. Childcare will be provided. Stay tuned for further details to come soon including instructions for reservations.

Our blog site Mixed Space is a slice of life for the mixed community. You don’t need to write an essay, just share what happened to you today. If it happened to you it probably happened to someone else, too! So don’t be shy because we want to hear what you have to say.
MASC’s founder Nancy Brown participated in a talkback session after The Pasadena Playhouse’s production of “The Whipping Man.” Questions of faith and culture raised during the play were shared not only by the panelists but by the cast as well. This incredibly moving show pushes the audience out of its comfort zone through a recreation of past events that still resonate today. Special thanks to Fanshen Cox-DiGiovanni from Mixed Roots Stories and The Pasadena Playhouse for inviting us to participate.
